Zusi, subbed into the match in the 70th minute, scored the final goal of the United States's 4-0 victory over Costa Rica on Tuesday.

Zusi came onto the pitch in relief of Bobby Wood, which could point to a potential role as super-sub for the US as they continue in the Copa America, which limits the midfielder's fantasy value. Given manager Jurgen Klinsmann's tendency towards youth, it is unlikely the 29-year-old Zusi will supplant Wood in the starting XI unless the youngster's contributions significantly drop off.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zusi contributed six shots, including two on goal, Sunday as Sporting KC edged out Orlando City SC 2-1 at home.

Zusi finished one of three Sporting KC players logging six or more shots against Orlando City on Sunday, yet failed to find the back of the net for a 23rd straight appearance in the victory. The 29-year-old midfielder continues to trail only Saad Abdul-Salaam as the squad's No. 2 for assists this season, however.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zusi earned an assist in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with LA.

Zusi earned his third assist, and just his first points since April 9. He already has more than half the assists he had last season, but he has yet to put the ball into the back of the net. If Zusi is going to increase his fantasy value he will need to begin scoring.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zusi had no shots but did record an assist in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Red Bulls.

The 17th minute cross to Benny Feilhaber was Zusi's first assist this season, and through five games he now has one assist, six shots, and two shots on goal. He doesn't often score goals, but he's a regular starter who creates opportunities which means he has value as part of a high-scoring SKC offense. He should be a starter against Colorado on Wednesday.

The U.S. men's national team announced Sunday it called up Zusi in advance of Tuesday's matchup with Guatemala, MLSSoccer.com reports.

Zusi, who has made 32 appearances for the USMNT and was a member of the squad that traveled to Brazil to participate in the 2014 World Cup, heads to Guatemala after manufacturing a single shot on goal and an assist in three 2016 appearances for Sporting Kansas City.

Zusi (calf) is listed in the starting XI for Saturday's game against the Rapids.

Zusi has dealt with lingering pain his calf of late but he'll shake it off to assume his normal role in the starring XI. The midfielder enters Saturday with two goals and four assists on the season after 16 total appearances.

Zusi (calf) will face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's game against Colorado, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

Zusi returned from his calf issue last weekend against the Crew but he re-aggravated the injury while on the field and was visibly limping towards the end of the contest. SKC is jockeying for position at the top of the Western Conference but they could probably afford an absence from Zusi in Colorado since the Rapids have struggled to compile results this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Zusi (calf) is available off the bench Wednesday against San Jose.

Zusi missed the last three games due to the injury, and while he was healthy enough to make the bench Wednesday, he makes for a very tough fantasy play given the uncertain playing time.
